congress. >> horrible numbers for congress. >> a pitiful 14%. >> pretty bad numbers on john boehner's report card. >> the debt ceiling is a dangerous game. >> i don't see that as a winner for them. >> don't fight battles you can't win. >> it is a troubled time for the party. >> let's stop for a second. >> let's make clear decisions. >> the republican strategy. >> stop talking about rape. >> don't fight battles you can't win. >> it is a troubled time for the party, get something done. >> we have to be the party of new solutions, we're not just going to be the party of no. >> it is groundhog day. >> the conservatives, the retreat, we've come a long way since. >> i'm ezra klein in for lawrence o'donnell, one of the great moments, when redford having just won the election, sits down on the bed taking it all in. the next few words are not just to ever film junky, pretty much to every political candidate. >> what do we do now? >> what do we do now? that is always the question, what do you do now when you have to govern? but it is not just a question that affects winners, sometimes losers
screening of "lincoln" last month. had mitch mcconnell, john boehner, lamar alexander attended, they were all invited, they would have joined not only nancy pelosi, harry reid but steven spielberg, tommy lee jones. as tip o'neill famously said about his political foe, ronald reagan, love the sinner. hate the sin. when president reagan would invite the speaker, tip o'neill over to the white house for drinks and raise a glass to one another. there's no shortage of parties planned around inauguration 2013. here is hoping it spills over to the next four years and both sides of the aisle make a move to be more social and more civil. and, hence, more productive. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz, starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome "the ed show" from new york. republicans are raising the white flag. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. >> the republican game of chicken is over. eric cantore proposes a three-month deal on the debt ceiling.
and john boehner in a back room, and we just sit around. >> so much of the disillusionment you hear from members who feel they're going to make a difference is exactly what you're talking about. and so much of the infighting is really not so much between the parties, while there's plenty of that, there is such a frustration between house and senate. they openly knock each other in the hallways because they operate differently. and we have this whole sort of filibuster battle going on in the senate. the rules and how do things get through. and on the house side over and over again, there's this weary sense of they've passed some things. they may not be popular everywhere, but they did pass a budget. so what they're trying to do with this no budget, no pay is to sort of turn up the screws on the senate. and so republicans hoping to not get the blame for some of these fights are trying to focus a light on the senate not passing a budget which most people don't even realize has happened. >> i get your point, though. it's got to be frustrating to see the big debates get resolved in this backr
. this gimmick is the only thing republicans have up their sleeves right now. john boehner told everyone two years ago the country would not default on its debt. >> do you agree with administration officials and other economists that defaulting on the full faith and credit of the united states would be a financial disaster? >> that would be a financial disaster, not only for our country, but for the worldwide economy. >> and president obama reminded congress the economic damage done by playing games with the debt limit. >> the last time republicans in congress even flirted with this idea, our aaa credit rating was downgraded for the first time in our history. our businesses created the fewest jobs of any month in nearly the past three years and, ironically, the whole fiasco actually added to the deficit. >> republicans basically had no choice but to retreat from their hard line position, negotiating with the american people. if the country defaulted, they would be responsible for a global economic collapse. the new plan for a three-month increase guarantees another debate in the next few mon
disagreement solution. i think john boehner is committed to do something. we see a lot of movement going on in the senate. this week we saw that senator marco rubio came out with a plan and is getting actually great endorsement from some of the right wing conservatives and pundits and influence makers in our party. and also from the wous. when was the last time you heard, you know, right wing conservative pundits and the white house agree on anything? they agreed that this plan was actually aed goo thing. so it looks like there is some hope on that. it's going to require a very delicate balancing act, by the white house, by democrats, and republicans in congress. >> and very quickly, what do you think it will look like in this second term? >> well, in terms of immigration, i do think that it is a priority for this president. it sounds like the republicans are getting to the point where, and we heard this right after the election, that they understood what they needed to do to attract latinos to the party, when you hear sean hannity talk about, we have to do comprehensive immigration refo
% of americans approve of the job he's doing as president. only 26% approve of the republican party. john boehner has an 18% approval rating. the tea party, 9% approval rating. this is a movement, this is a party in retreat and that's why the president did what he did yesterday. >> let's look at that. best case scenario would be to have two strong parties and a great national conversation and great sense of balance. i understand how you could read the speech as i won, ha-ha, and also, could be seen as this is what the country is telling me. how do we get the other points of view in there. maybe perhaps -- this is the hard part, extract what i think is dying and what i think you think is dying, that is the extremist part of that. >> the extreme part of the republican party is in retreat and just as bill buckley chased john birchers out of the conservative movement in the 1960s, so, too, will these extremists be chased out of the mainstream of the republican party. they will evolve or they will die. it's that simple. i'm not so sure the president can say, katty kay, this is what the american people
is too small. >>brian: we now know why michelle obama rolled her eyes at house speaker john boehner during monday's inauguration luncheon in the capitol. according to a professional lip reader -- >>gretchen: i knew it was a joke between two guys. >>brian: boehner asked the president if he had a cigarette and then somebody won't let you do it. >>gretchen: president obama, a longtime smoker claims to have kicked the habit. you can tell when we looked at this video yesterday that the two gentlemen were enjoying some sort of joke that michelle obama did not think was funny. now we know why. of course. she's probably been trying to help her husband kick the habit. keep in mind, her initiative is healthy america. it has to do with obesity but also healthy america. john boehner, as we know, totally his right. he's a smoker. maybe it's the one thing that john boehner and president obama agree on. >>brian: that john boehner should keep smoking? >>gretchen: no. that they enjoy a cigarette from time to time. >>steve: if she said to one of the 60 minutes reporters i was only allowed to run for
% approval rating. john boehner has an 18% approval rating. the tea party, a 9% approval rating. i wonder what lens they are looking through. >> well i think that's the problem. i think that's the problem with ted cruz's performance yesterday, michael steele because that is not what i think we're going to see down the road road, the new republican party is going to look like. >> i think coming on the heels of the inauguration in the next few weeks, what the american people are looking for is that rodney king moment that little bit of light where we can get along and begin to get things done. i think to joe's point, and to yours, mika yesterday ted cruz was sending out another call taking a different tone and direction than the one the american people are expecting beginning in this atmosphere with the inauguration, the excitement of that. people expect the partisanship to get to the water's edge and stop and begin something fresh. >> by the way, this is not for us -- this is not for the republicans to be nice. >> no exactly. >> this isn't about being nice. this i
sources? >> steve: okay, fine. >> brian: house speaker john boehner looking towards the president's second term and warning republicans about what he sees coming. listen. >> we're expecting over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration as they attempt to anilate the republican party. >> brian: as recommended by a cbs political director. is this unfortunately true and should americans expect more from both parties? fox news legal analyst peter johnson, jr. is here. is this unprecedented? does every party want to beat the other party to this degree? >> i think there is a visceral, intense dislike coming out of the white house for the republican party that's not unprecedented, but we probably haven't seen such an oppositional party dislike since the waning days of the nixon administration. there is something nixonian about it. i think what john boehner is saying is this is a call to action. this is a wake up call. this is almost a pull revere call saying, we're going to have issues going forward in the next 22 months and we've got to get the folks who are interested in the re
feel sorry in some ways for my old friend john boehner because he is trying to lead a group of people who i think refuse to be led, let alone know how to be led any general direction. they should have listened colin powell with gregory over the weekend who laid out very clearly. there's a skism in their party. there's a dysfunction. he doesn't recognize it, and i'm sure he is not alone. i hope they'll get some order for them. the president has a big jaentd. we talked a little bit about it. star is talking about an issue that needs a set of issues that need to be addressed, and you have to have a minority party in the congress and the senate that you can work with. a leader on the other side who can coral his troops. right now it's an uncoralable and encourageable group. politico is on the republican side. >> one of the only solutions -- i guess not the only solution, about the one of the main solutions is totally unacceptable to republicans, and has to spend money to save money. by that i mean funding preventive care so early on in life you can have the dietary structure that you need
polling, 81% disapprove and the personal ratings of congressional leaders are under water. john boehner especially back, upside down by 19 points on the rating and the republican party's negative rating, 49%, is at the all-time high for the gop during obama's presidency. just 26% see the party in a positive light. the gop lost the most ground with self described republicans. the tea party also has its lowest rating ever, positive views of the tea party, they have dropped to just 23%. joining me now while i get a glass of water after those numbers, nbc news senior political editor mark murray. listen. not to chew on again, but mark, why i like the segments is based on numbers. questions to what we assume are average voters out there and getting a glimpse of what these people both feel about their own personal situations and what some might call the shenanigans in d.c. >> the context is very important here, tamron. this is after the fiscal cliff fight we had right over the new year and also comes after the tragic shootings in newtown, connecticut. and of course, sets up president obama's
engineering. so when john boehner comes together with his plan b in december, there's no unanimity or consensus in the republican party about that. i think the gop has to get its own house in order. >> they're all screwed up. that's what i'm saying. >> but they're the ones who talk about spending cuts -- >> base is going to -- >> you know the base of the republican party better than i do but i think the republican base doesn't have anywhere to go. >> they go home to sleep. they can watch tv. they can watch a sporting event. they can have a couple of beers. believe me. you're seeing the base. you ever see what they look like? i'm sorry. >> you said that. not me. >> i didn't say that. matt welch, you're kind of a neutral observer in this whole story. >> kind of. >> let me get your take on this. do you think the gop's getting the message out? >> i think it was shrewd politically what they did today. >> okay. >> they put democrats on the defensive. they shined a light on the fact they haven't passed a budget in 1,360 days and said hey if you want to be -- we don't want to be the irresp
wallace channeled her inner billie bush. we wanted to see him stammering and blubbering like john boehner leaving production of les miserables. he denied bribing teammates and bribing people and denied doing steroids since 2006. coincidently the last year that the statute of limitations apply. he was lying all over the place. i don't think he helped himself at all last night. i came away liking him less than i did before the interview. >> bill: gutfeld, he has got legal problems all over the place. we talked about this with our is it legal duo earlier in the week. this makes it worse. because he basically is saying, you know, i sued the times of london, for example, he won a judgment. half a million dollars. but i was lying. the story they had was right. and i did it and now people suing him. i think there is a hair person or a masseuse or somebody who said look, he did it, and he went after her, and all of this business. now he loses all of those cases. and if he didn't say anything, at least he would have a chance. >> well, you know what? he only has one option left. and that is to ente
has a 52% approval rating. john boehner has an 18% approval rating. those are pretty good numbers. and i think also there are glimmers of hope for those of us who believe the president has stayed on his side of pennsylvania avenue too much. he said over the past week or two, his daughters are getting older, they don't like hanging around dad as much anymore. >> he's lonely. >> he's lonely. the president used to tell anybody that would listen, i work and then i go upstairs and i'm with my family. you can't trivialize the fact that he is talking about reaching out more, not just to republicans, but we hear the same complaints from democratic senators as well, and it is a really good sign to get things done. we have to make this city work again. >> david axelrod, tom's point, the pirls of a second term. you have thought about this and talked to the president about it. how does he map out these next four years? >> first of all, i want to say i appreciate the priorities that tom laid out. but there's a larger priority of which this is part, which is how do you create an economy, rebuil
in the last few days governor bobby jindal, paul ryan, and john boehner give statements saying, listen, we have to move to a different place than where we are now. we have to show people we're a governing party. that basically we're not unhappy, miserable, and scary. whether they can do that or not, i don't know. boehner did get his default bill through congress yesterday through his own caucus. not with everyone voting for it but with a majority which was mildly surprising and a small step towards sanity. but whether they can go all the what i to full-fledged sanity, well, that remains to be seen. >> david corn sounding completely optimistic about the republican party. david corn and goldie taylor, thank you so much. >>> coming up, yes, republicans are angry at everything, and we offer some therapy just ahead. stay with us. >> folks, if beyonce lip synced at obama's inaugural, do you know what that means? if so, please wrooity in because i'd love to know why i'm so angry right now. ite in because i'd love to know why i'm so angry right now. >>> time for the your business entrepreneur of t
to work. guess who decides? it's eric cantor and john boehner. put us to work four or five days a week. >> i have a little different opinion. first of all, i love going home because i live in paradise, south florida and right about now i like to be there and i like to get with my constituents and hear what they have to say. >> one of the rare congress members who likes her district. >> yes. >> i love being in florida. but i also believe in first do no harm. it sort of concerns me in the house the type of legislation that would be brought forward. so i'm not as disappointed that these people are not bringing, you know, rushing with their bills. >> because you don't think they'll be good bills. >> no. i don't think they can be good bills. >> this function goes even further. the fact that last session for six weeks they didn't have flood insurance in place, 47,000 people couldn't close on their homes. >> right. >> that is not even logical. it is pure dysfunction. >> but that is the point isn't it, mark? because look. >> that is the point you're making. >> i'm the care giver for my mom. i
. but you're right. they have as john boehner likes to say, they have just this -- they have the house. one half of one-third of what controls washington. so boehner is a national leader. you have mitch mcconnell, minority leader in the senate. but they don't have the platforms that the president of the united states has. on the other hand, they do control the house of representatives. and if -- a fiscal resolution to some of the fiscal issues. >> they don't agree on any of those issues, though. >> not at all. so what's -- how does he move his agenda through this congress, right? when republicans control the house? the only model we have so far is what happened with the fiscal cliff. negotiate a deal on the senate between republicans, democrats and the white house, and then force it through the house of representatives by basically putting republicans' backs to the wall and making them pass it either at the last minute, because there is a deadline approaching or because they'll be so embarrassed if they don't pass it. and that's not a great legislative strategy for every issue. but the issu
solve this problem together and the we has to be inclusive and has to include john boehner and the house and the senate. we've got to get government to work well together and the president's the leader and he's got to provide the leadership to make it happen of the he didn't do that very well in his first term. >> steve: sure. it would be great to see four years of that. mr. card, i know you have been involved in five inaugurations. you've served for three different presidents starting with ronald reagan and then 41 and then 43 as well. today, while we watch what's going on on the west face of the capitol, at the white house, whole bunch of people are reenergized because a lot of people get new offices, new assignments. plain how that works -- explain how that works behind the scene. >> it's sort of like new year's day. you're all excited and you make all kinds of promises that you're going to lose weight and exercise and it's very exciting. people get to move into offices. they shuffle around, get new phone numbers, new business cards. take an oath of office to help the president do his
